to the democratic party and became the 60th vote on obama care. so that worked out well for demint. but demint does rather this being in the minority thing so much that he wants to seven out the rest of his term in the minority. when you're a senator and you even begin talking to another employer about leaving the senate, you have to file this paper with the senate office of public records. they do that so before a big vote on, say, an energy bill that will make oil companies really rich, you can't go to a big oil company and say, hey, don't you think i'd make a good executive vice president who doesn't do anything but makes a ton of money for not doing it? but makes way less money than you'll make if this bill i'm going to be voting on passes? we want to know that kind of thing if it's happening. so you have to file this paper and demint filed his paper only yesterday. according to him, these negotiations began and ended in 24 hours. that is very decisive for leaving the u.s. senate. and if it is true then it's really looking like the heritage foundation and jim demint saw an opportunity in the co
's big decision on the obama care exchange. and apple's ceo breaks big news to nbc's brian williams. >> next year, we will do one of our existing mac lines in the united states. >> tonight, a story of economic patriotism in an era of bain capital with e.j. dionne. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. the reality start to set in on members of the republican party. republican senator jim demint of south carolina is leaving kplil capitol hill to become president of the heritage foundation. don't cry for demint. the out-going president of the heritage foundation made $1.1 million according to 2010 tax filings. demint will do just fine. it's not just about the money. the senator realizes he could be more effective for the conservative movement if he's not attached to the dysfunctional party known as the republican party. in a statement, demint said "i'm leaving the senate now but i'm not leaving the fight. i've decided to join the heritage foundation at a time when the conservative movement needs strong leadership in the battle of ideas." he was more to the point
. >> pete, last time we saw a highly controversial case in obama care, we saw a full court press really lobby the justices and put a lot of pressure on them recognizing that they will set the tone of what this court looks like. do you think we'll see that hard lobbying again? >> reporter: well, i don't think it will be quite like that, because there isn't as much money at stake like he in obama care. obviously, to many people on both sides of this issue, it's an important values question. it will attract lots of friends of court briefs. remember, only nine states chose to make same-sex marriage legal, and many other states, the majority of states in the u.s. have decided not to allow it or amended their constitutions to forbid it. so they're strongly held views out there, and yes, i'm sure that the justices will hear all about that by the time they get ready to hear this case argued in march. >> might we end up with a situation where in every state in america you can or cannot get married, and this will just decide this at least for the time being? >> reporter: you know, that's the inte
. >> because i care about that issue and i know president obama cares about comprehensive immigration reform so much, i hope so. but so far, all the indications are that they don't get it. there doesn't appear oh be an embrace of comprehensive immigration reform. the dream act has not been embraced. they aren't making the kinds of noises that you'd hear if they were getting ready to bring that bill to the floor quickly. they still have, remember, they didn't lose that many of their tea party entrenched incumbents on the house side. john boehner still has to deal with that element of his party and they are extreme as we saw in the last congress. >> indeed they are extreme. congresswoman, thanks for coming on the show. >> thanks for having me. >> could a bill that would extend only middle class tax cuts get to a vote in the house and win despite the efforts of john boehner? we'll explain, coming up next.

there are other things that happen? can we scale back the generosity of the obama care subsidies? can we start means testing in additional ways in the medicare program? they have to get creative. >> they got it to get creative, zachary. this comes at the busiest time of the year for retailers and businesses. have you noticed any signs at this point that consumers are at all holding back this holiday season fearing we may go over the so-called fiscal cliff? >> there's a lot of news reports on consumers holding back, but it's not clear it to me that that's more than finding a story and finding your anecdote. >> are you accusing the media of -- >> i'm making an observation and i'm going to by the ipad but i'm worried about the fiscal cliff so i'm buying the mini. that's about the extent of consumer concern. consumers are worried about jobs and general economic conditions insofar as washington is perceived as a impediment to that, which is clearly is perceived as, then people are concerned. i don't think you have nearly a one-to-one connection. the consumer sentiment is a pretty weird gauge which
from now. bush v. gore, obama care were relative pip skeks. the government's assertion of the power to prohibit a gofg couple to marry or to refuse to recognize such a marriage is profound. so the opposite claim that five justices can read the federal constitution to strip the people of the power to enact the laws governing such a fundamental social institution. you know, elizabeth, it's not like we're talking about rock of ages, the big surprise. we have nine states that have done it. in this past election, which i think is pivotal, four states did it completely by popular vote. no court ruling on rights, just public will. >> for the first time in 40 years in four states thanks to the efforts of chad and a lot of other people, for the first time there was a populist vote, and the people spoke. they have never spoken in favor before, but there are really two ways. it's also equal protection under the law and also that the court has found it to be a fundamental right. this is an extraordinary, extraordinary time, and -- >> let's cut this in two. there's to questions here. one is doma
. no doubt about that. the other thing that's working is obama care. these numbers areon healthcare, you know, labor secretary hilda solis. i hope she will be in monday. she has been generous about coming in almost every month on the month after the jobs report comes out. good news or bad news she is here to tell us what it means. one of the things we discussed with her is the real growth sector in this country today in terms of jobs is the health industry, healthcare industry because obamacare. more people getting health insurance means more demand on clinics, more demands for physician assistants and nurse practitioners and health providers across the board. it's a growth industry today. >> yeah. we talked about some of the other job execute areas gu it's going to be a growth area both because of the change because of obama care and dem graphics. >> right. >>> as people get older, they demand a little bit more healthcare. >> right. >> they need it. the more you think about this, this is pretty good news over all. >> good news on the jobs front. we go
mandate under obama- care, and things like that that will make it more expensive for people to hire people. host: we have the cato institute and the economic policy institute with us this morning, and the one area where people seem to disagree is measuring the benefits of what $1 put into unemployment insurance means on the backside. mr. josh bivens, what is your estimate on what $1 buys in this program? guest: a lot of economic forecasters agree this is the most efficient form of economic support you can provide through fiscal policy. when dollar spent yields about $1.50, $1.70 in economic activity. $30 billion is at stake here. we are basically talking, if we do not do that, nearly knocking a half of a percentage point off of gdp and have 140,000 fewer jobs at the end of the year. host: mr. michael tanner, your reading on what the dollar buys? guest: not surprisingly, i do not agree. i agree with economic experts that suggest that the keynesian economics model they are using their does not work, as it assumes that on income and benefits are spent and none of this aid to pay off existing
had uncertainty after uncertainty. when it gets resolved we don't see the upswing it was obama-care it waltz. >> i recollection. then it was the fiscal cliff. there is always something out there holding companies back. i think this means this is the new normal. we have a distrust of washington. we are not sure the economy will get better and it's kinds of every man for himself. alisyn: thanks so much. the economy is the focus of a debate in michigan where an historic employment bill is about to become law. mike tow tobin is live from chicago. >> reporter: the point republicans are trying to sell is this does not target collective bargaining. all the legislation does according to republicans is make optional union dues and union membership for everyone other than police and firefighters. union members say it attacks their foundation and in all places, michigan, the cradle of organized labor. >> you will have people that will be working right alongside of you that will not have to pay union dues that you pay union dues but will still be able to get all the benefits from being a union
the romney care, they were so proud of it. then president obama takes romney care and adopts it on the national level. so what was jim demitt's reaction to that? get a load of him earlier at the heritage foundation talking about that. >> the supreme court have said that we could keep it, but the american people must stand up and say it is bad policy, bad law, bad for our economied and most of all bad for health care. >> cenk: all of a sudden that brilliant idea is bad for everything, so bad. you guys are such utter frauds. why did you leave in the first place? lets find out. >> i have terminated myself. i never intended to be a career politician. >> nonsense! you might say that at the end of your term, but if you leave four years early no, he went for the money, lebow ski. he's among the poor senators. he didn't come in rich. there's nothing wrong with that. he was number 98 out of 100. he has 16,000 to 65,000 in savings. for a senator that is a very small amount of money. he's in washington, everybody around him is incredibly rich, almost all millionaires, what is he going t

care about that money more. the obama proposal beyond what we are talking about goes after those dividends and that is a way to fight economic equality right now. >> we tax labor higher than we tax capitol. the republicans believe it does, they believe the higher you tax something the more you are discouraging it. there is bill crystal asking why do we want to tax labor more than capitol? that is the question. >> it is interesting. you are are seeing rank and file members of the party. you are starting to see the troops fall away. what would happen if for instance the senate bill were to be voted on in the house? >> they want to do it. and it would pass. we would have to get into these other questions. >> polls favoring the president in his approach and the outcome that he wants. and the polls i don't think that rush are limbaugh is reading those polls. >> there is no way to come to an agreement. the only thing that can happen is for one side to cave in. this is being realistic. there is no common ground here. there is no bipartisanship to be had. it ain't going to happen. there
. the only thing they care about is the top 2%. >> this is the quiet fight in the obama era. the one new tax that he did propose is on the superrism rich with regard to dividends on stocks. what you are talking about is that it is written by so many rich people. labor is harder, and you care about that money more. the obama proposal beyond what we are talking about goes after those dividends and that is a way to fight economic equality right now. >> we tax labor higher than we tax capitol. the republicans believe it does, they believe the higher you tax something the more you are discouraging it. there is bill crystal asking why do we want to tax labor more than capitol? that is the question. >> it is interesting. you are are seeing rank and file members of the party. you are starting to see the troops fall away. what would happen if for instance the senate bill were to be voted on in the house? >> they want to do it. and it would pass. we would have to get into these other questions. >> polls favoring the president in his approach and the outcome that he wants. and the polls i don't think t
's leadership. then came president obama's election in 2008. health care reform igniting the tea party movement and then demint quickly became a leader and re hetorical flamethrower. >> if we're able to stop obama on this, it will be his waterloo. >> but demint had no significant legislative impact or victories regularly bucking the republican establishment, supporting senate candidates close to his own view of conservatism with, of course, mixed success. >> i've been criticized by some of my republican colleagues for saying i'd rather have 30 republicans in the senate who believe in the principles of freedom than 60 who don't believe in anything. >> he was an early supporter of florida senator marco rubio. now the gop star, incoming senator cruz who tells mike lee all on the demint list. while 15 won primaries just seven are united states senators today. many party leaders, in fact, blame demint for high-profile senate losses in indiana, delaware, colorado and nevada and in a statement made yesterday minority leader mitch mcconnell said this. i thank senator demint for his uncompromising servi
